Teach Us, Dear Lord, to serve Thee as Thou deservest.

To Give, and not to Count the Cost.

To Fight, and not to Heed the Wounds.

To Labor, and not to Seek for Rest.

To Serve Thee, and not Ask for Any Reward

Save that of Knowing that We Do Thy Will.

-attributed to Ignatius Loyola, quoted by Josiah Bunting in An Education for Our Time, p. 126.
